The food is delicious and the portions are super large ( I always have to ask for take out after I'm done, because I can't eat it all at once ). The food is tasty and spicy, everything on the menu is great ( I MEAN EVERYTHING ). And it's cheap as hell! :) For example, any 2 dishes and... More

We ordered fajitas and we were very satisfied with them, even ordered another two tortillas to eat it all. We took Panna cottas for desserts. They were yummy with a tiny flaw.. We could feel sugar underneath our teeth, meaning forest fruit weren't boiling enough.. Other than that we were pleased.

El Pulari is established as one of most popular places in Pula for younger people to celebrate various occasions. I'm regular guest for years now and i can tell that size of portions have been reduced over the years but quality stays pretty much the same. There is variety of mexican food on menu, and it's quite tasty, however it's... More

Always full of people, great atmosphere and food. Prices are normal, not high so always full of guests and very often asking for a place more. Food is typical Messican served in an colorful enthusiastic place. Recomandation

At our last visit, I realized that this, so called "mexican restaurant" serves, for example, store bought tortillas and other stuff. We waited more than 45 min to get the food with the quallity actually little bit better than fast food. At the end, service is highly unprofessional. If I'm not satisfied with served warmed canned beans that supposed to... More

El Pulari is a restaurant of mexican food at the periferia of Pula. It is pretty small but cosy. My boyfriend and I are going there like all the time! Food is really delicious. Chicken with peanut sauce is the best ever!! Tortillas also excellent! Portions are big, staff friendly and helpful! Highly recommend!

My partner and I enjoyed our food here, but it wasn't anything special. I would go back... but only because it has the monopoly on 'different' i.e. no pizza/pasta/grilled meat & seafood type restaurants in Pula. The restaurant itself was busy, but I'd suggest that the reason for that was because it again was different.

Thank BlackCountryDan
